The view outside

One I made earlier.. now we are in spring time.. Glade someone in wordpress arranged that publish later.. I can put the post for when ever.. Mind you I could not show you rainy paintings in mid summer.. spring is OK as it is either here or there. If I catch that guy who invented chronic pains.. I am going to make sure he lives in winter time all year round..

It start raining here around Christmas and it seems as if someone forgot where was the tap so they can cut it off… that was the view from the patio door few weeks ago..

Up the Hill


Just returned from a super weekend from ‘Wombania Island’ for those who never heard about it, it is tucked deep in the Pacific. I was quite lucky as my dearest friend the millionaires ‘Debbie Adams’ whisked me away on a private jet of her friend ‘Fraz’ for FREE!

Fraz just started his own new airline ‘Frazline’ and you must use it because the service is amazing! You receive non stop supply of pizzas and chocolate and for dessert you get Debs speciality ‘Fraz Youth Capsules’ they are fantastic.. By the way Fraz use in his fleet the new ‘Fraz 999’ jet from ‘Frazbuss’ production company of-course and what shall I say, It is equipped with all the latest technology, a swimming pool, Cinema, Tennis court, a Wombania restaurant and even a small Skiing slope at the rear of the plane. Non stop milkshakes are served all the way also in the superb bars with unique flavours. You must try the ‘Lemon Shark Surprise’ it is out of this world.

On the island we met Debs friend ‘Fraz’. What an amazing character he is, don’t stop making you laugh for one second. He is a water sport enthusiastic and he took us deep sea diving to feed the sharks that grow the special ingredients for the ‘Shark Milkshake Surprise’. We also were allowed to use his latest model of fast canoe around his castle motes. A bit fast and scary but never had such a fun ride before!

Yes Fraz recently was nominated for the Noble prize for peace for making all the children around the world friends and his programme provided each member, friend with free pizzas and chocolate all year round. He also award you a bottle of the secret magic youth made by Deb each Christmas once you join his fun base. I had such a good time, thank you Deb and Fraz for a lovely weekend which I will never forget… and you, yes you that reading… what are you waiting for? Call your travel agent and book a ‘Frazline’ to ‘Fraz island’ right away. I am so grateful and don’t know how to thank them all at Wombania enough… But let me tell you I will come with some presents very soon, as they are my new heroes.

At the Marina

Often I see some exercises in various magazines and when I have spare moment or two I tried them on… As I always said practice make you better, beside it not taking too long if you are not trying to do you best ever masterpiece. This one was with Paul Weaver


St. Loup cat

I probably will end paying some royalty for this little cat that chased us in Bandouille.. Actually I did asked it, if I can sketched it and the answer was Meow meow mais Oui mais Oui… I even took a paw signature just in-case. And you clearly see the modling skills in the eyes…

The final view

Croc in the making

We learn in our evening class from Karen Birt our teacher which is a great artist herself, about Cartoons, the subject was wild life. It is adaptation of a traditional technique for transferring a line drawing to a support. Used by masters like Chardin and George Stubbs for the animals. You simply make small holes with a needle on the main lines which give you accurate shapes you transfer it with charcoal and later paint it up. This one is an oil paintings.


the final and don’t say I did not warned you.. he is watching you every where you go… so make sure you run.


TWGC sketches

Before making the oil paintings of my golf club I played with the idea in small sketches which i found very helpful before committing to paint my final paintings.

The first concept

Walking from the first to the left we get our fifth tee and when you hit the ball you have to go over a small pond, it is out of bound and in the winter a long hit to the wind… Many get the ball wet here. When you walk down near the water in spring or later in the summer, I feel I should one day paint this beautiful place… When you look across you normally can see the people images walking along on the water on the other side and in a good day even the house further away from our 8th hole.  In season you can meet there some ducks and many little ducklings learning to swim after surviving the foxes the night before… It is amazing sanctuary for small wild life which I love.
